Get near-professional quality sound with the Canon DM-100 stereo microphone. It features a mono or stereo design with an adjustable field width for getting the most out of any recording situation. You can adjust the field width with the flip of a switch. Choose 90º if your subject is relatively close and narrowly focused (like a person or two); choose 120º when recording a wider or more distant subject such as a sporting event, play, etc.

A built-in shock-mount in the stem of the DM-100 partially isolates it from sound-muddying vibrations, helping you get a clearer audio recording. It easily attaches to the advanced accessory shoe on select Canon camcorders, so there are no cords to get tangled or drag on the floor. And no batteries required: This mic draws its power directly from the camcorder.
